Oak Class

Welcome to Oak class


June 2019


Oak class have started their rehearsals for their end-of-year school performance of “Let the Games Begin”. The children will need to learn the lines, make costumes, props, sell tickets and make posters. They will be encouraged to take as much of this on independently as possible. Oak class will also be involved in the organisation and running of Sports Day and our Inter-House Sport Tournament. A busy term with a lot to look forward too!



March 2019



Oak class have been working hard on the last sections of their WW2 topic - War and Peace. We have spent time looking at VE Day and VJ day and understanding the ongoing effects of a war. Many of the children will also be in their final stages of preparing for our PGL trip. For many of whom, this will be the first time away from family. With a long Easter break coming up, there will be a collection of work to have a look at over the time off. Easter is a time to relax and enjoy experiences with the family; so I would strongly suggest that a little bit of work each day will stop a large chunk at the end. 



January 2019


Oak Class have made a good start to the year. Before Christmas we looked at our two topics of:

'The Great Outdoors' which covered many things about our geographical location in the world, the features that surround us and the rivers and mountain ranges around the world.

'Modern World' through which we looked at buildings, architecture and structures around the world and in our own country and a wide range of London landmarks.

We are continuing to work harder on out topic 'War and Peace' which will take us on a journey of discovery through WW2, the key events and our ancestors.

Homework in the class is getting better and beginning to come in on time and completed accurately and effectively for the vast majority of the class. I would please ask that, as we continue on our steps towards the SATs tests in May, children continue to develop the level of effort and ownership of the homework and try to understand that it is a part of the consolidation process and will give them the best opportunities for success. Please feel free to come and see me for any further information on this or questions.

Keep up the hard work Oak Class! Well done.

This week we have been having great fun practising our end of year 6 performance. It’s been hard work but we are really looking forward to performing it for you. We are sure you’ll thoroughly enjoy it. Have you got your tickets?


Oak class are working hard on their new book Holes. Each child is taking time to understand the various relationships of the characters and how they challenge the journey of the story. The Chessington trip deadline is the 29th June for any final payments. Anyone who has not made a complete payment by then won’t be able to go.


Oak class have made a good start this term to their work on ‘Holes’. Mr Fenton would like to remind all of the children that they are going to secondary school at the end of this term. Because of this, children should be fully equipped and organised when coming to school in preparation for the expectations of secondary school.

February 2018


Well done to those children who are bringing their homework back and are trying their hardest week after week. Many of the children in Oak class have been building quite a collection of positive cards up and some have even made it to the first stage of the prizes.
